Michael Amott from ARCH ENEMY talks ‘Deceivers’, Carcass, Angela Gossow and Spiritual Beggars

Extreme metal masters Arch Enemy have recently unleashed their 11th studio album, Deceivers, via Century Media Records.

A collection of 11 tracks that are ruthlessly catchy and mercilessly violent, Deceivers stands toe-to-toe with the highlights of the band’s storied catalogue. Roaring to life with “Handshake With Hell”, Arch Enemy make it clear they are out for blood, and every track is a hit, from the moody “Poisoned Arrow” to the titanically anthemic “One Last Time”. Sounding more energized than ever, the quintet is operating at the highest level, delivering a maelstrom of diamond-hard riffing wrapped around cinematic melodies, thunderous drumming and towering vocals. Arch Enemy has proved, yet again, that they are unstoppable.

The Everblack Podcast spoke to Arch Enemy guitarist Michael Amott about their new album ‘Deceivers’, how the band managed to stay productive over the last couple of years, working with former vocalist Angela Gossow behind the scenes, staying in touch with his mates in Carcass, upcoming touring plans and if he will ever record a double concept album!
